Wolgemuth, Jennifer R.; Koro, Mirka – Research in the Schools, 2021
Methodologist. Methodologist. Methodologist. Methodologist. Saying a word enough times in rapid-fire succession can make it lose its meaning. Your focus shifts from understanding of the word and its multiple signifiers, to the sounds you make when you say it, the movement of your lips and the shape of your mouth, the touch of your tongue on your…

Sherry, Michael B.; Agosto, Vonzell; Blank, Jolyn; Cain, Leia; Feldman, Allan; Jung, Karl; Wolgemuth, Jenni – Research in the Schools, 2021
Although much prior education research has addressed debates about the nature and status of research methodologies, this essay addresses the label "a methodologist." To examine this figure, we use the scholastic hexameter, an Aristotelian rhetorical heuristic often translated in contemporary terms as "the five Ws +H" (Who,…

Van Eck, Richard N. – Research in the Schools, 2021
Whether you believe you need a methodologist is very much dependent on academic training and your experience working with methodologists in pursuit of research. Methodologists are indispensable at all phases of the research process but perhaps nowhere more than at the beginning, when formulating your research questions and specifying what it is…

Pellegrino, Anthony; Adragna, Joseph; Whitworth, Caleb – Research in the Schools, 2019
The nature and relevance of race and racism make it a critical topic to explore. We assert that social studies classrooms are appropriate places to engage in that exploration. However, although there are myriad resources to support teaching about racism, many teachers largely avoid the topic. To address this challenge, we used a classroom-based…

Flexible seating recently has emerged as a way to address the pedagogical, cognitive, and…
